How to hire world class talent
- Be friends with it.
- Expect the process to take 6-24 months from start to finish, anyone great has a lot to leave behind.
- Create accelerating, non-vanity metrics.
- Understand core desire: to avoid boredom, social isolation, to live autonomously, to create something that lasts beyond death, to externally signal accomplishment.
- Make three offers with 6, 12, and 24-month time expirations to accommodate for various risk appetites.
- They already know who they are. Subtly remind them of your awareness from time to time.
- Different people are critical at different stages of growth.
